My intent is to encourage musicianship and not only to sell instruments. Additionally, I'd like to promote the social and therapeutic value of drumming through participation in community drum circles

"Without drums and rhythm, there's no time in music; it serves as the backbone," said William Henderson, an experienced and knowledgeable musician.
Henderson's journey as a musician (by passion, not by profession) began at age 11 or 12 when he would join his uncle's band on stage, at a handful of local bars and venues, to accompany him on the drums. However, he was told to wait outside during each intermission, of course, given the adult surroundings that had granted him temporary access.
In high school, he played the drums in the school band as well as a local rock band, The Skeptics, playing high school pep rallies and after school dances, fraternity and private parties and the weekly parks and recreation under 21 dance, the Monroe Street Stomp. After graduation, his admiration for instruments began to broaden as he explored many new varieties of music makers, which only strengthened his passion.
Fittingly, in November 2009, Henderson developed an online business to promote the brilliant diversity he has discovered within the world of musical instruments. His Web site, http://www.RhythmAndDrum.com, offers a broad selection of hand and stick drums as well as rhythm and ethnic musical instruments.
"I wanted to start a home-based business and the distribution of drums and other musical instruments was a natural fit because they were products that I was already knowledgeable about; plus, I enjoy spreading my passion for music to others," Henderson said.
On an even brighter note, the Web site's already extensive inventory will continue to grow and expand as Henderson updates his available merchandise with the addition of several wind and string instruments: harps, sitars, flutes, bagpipes and more.
"My intent is to encourage musicianship and not only to sell instruments. Additionally, I'd like to promote the social and therapeutic value of drumming through participation in community drum circles," Henderson said.
For further information about specific instruments and the purpose of drum circles and their ability to connect a group of strangers through music, shoppers are encouraged to visit the Web site's newly formulated blog, http://www.EthnicMusicReview.com. This interactive tool will also be used to discuss the many benefits of musicianship, such as entertainment, social interaction, therapeutic release and more.
